Originally from St. Louis, Rachel Huffman studied writing, literature and publishing in Boston. In 2012, she moved to Barcelona to teach English, travel and write. Travel has always been a part of her life, from trekking around the US for gymnastics to gallivanting around Europe when she studied abroad. Barcelona has proven to be an inspiration. She sees a future for herself here, writing for local blogs and publications, and continuing to explore the city and beyond.
